A comprehensive quiz + bonus fan faction about the the underrated cult classic show "Kelly Unicornstrider and Friends" (1982-1985). Questions range from really easy to really difficult.
I think putting this on "publish" makes it so only we can see this. It's just for us, sweetie. I made it to celebrate our anniversary and remember some special intimate moments together over the years in an interesting way as a present for you.
I hope you love it, Natalie, as much as I love you!
(Of course if there's any admin looking at this, or if I messed up, don't read this, because it's got private things in it.)
This is my required report to the full faculty in accordance with the rules noted in the Faculty Handbook (version 15.1, as of October 2017)

This game has sixteen words per path. Not counting "The End." So you can play quickly.
When reviewing, please use precisely sixteen words. That should be plenty for your suggestions and observations.

This news about the dying of our art and culture has made you want to regress back to our watery ancestors and just, you know, swim and not think about hard stuff. I have days like that.

Does learning about non-Western art along with Western art really make it harder? It sounds cool to get to learn about all sorts of art. I would be annoyed if they wholly removed Renaissance art, but it looks like there's a bunch in there.
The sad part is that the amount of people majoring in *any* humanities field is declining to the point of irrelevancy.

Also being cancelled at Yale--a survey course on "ancient Middle East, Egypt, and pre-Renaissance European art." According to the website, new courses will replace those two clases. "Some will engage with the monuments and masterpieces of European and American art, some will introduce other world traditions, and some will be organized thematically offering comparative perspectives."
Classes get cancelled and replaced by other classes constantly. It doesn't seem too weird to me. This National Review article notes what the new classes are. They sound pretty great.
Here is the article that those wresting their required panic-word-count takes the pull quote from. It's from the Yale Daily News Blog, not the academics. Yale Blog

I publicly have your back and show a unified front regarding this matter.

> How long is such ranting tolerated here
With you here now? Maybe it has another day left in it. You never know.

Actually, I think a sufficiently amusing rant is grounds for praise rather than banning here.

Just parsley stems and a crust of spelt bread. Sigh.

I suspect that if you hang around here long enough, you'll notice that people posting and complaining about their treatment at the hands of CoG is so typical as to be wholly beneath notice, to the point where it didn't even dawn on me to mention it to you. There's an entire thread from last year about my purported coddling of Sam and other stuff that I don't remember.
Another Loose CoG on 2/21/2020 4:10:05 PM
I don't believe it. Say something only you would say.
i assume our conversation on the CoG forum the other day moved you to swing by? Lots of good games to play here.

I clicked the link on wikipedia for "an exponent of machism" and got this.
I hadn't realized what we were dealing with here. This is complicated.
(I don't think machism with a small m is an English word.) On the up side I just learned the word "Caballerosidad."
